Today we spotlight one of our youngest Club Members, 15 year old Grace Johnston.
Main camera/gear: Sony Cyber-shot
Favorite Editing Software: Lightroom 4 and GIMP 2
What is your specific background or interest in photography?: I’m an artist want-to-be. I LOVE old artwork, especially oil paintings. When my Dad got back into photography, I tagged along being interested in it, and seeing a way to get Daddy time. Now I’m his test model/guinea pig. Using what I’ve learned in art class, I got hooked on photography, because I could finally make some of the pictures I saw in my head.
Favorite subject matter to photograph: If I had to chose one, it probably would be shooting animals (shooting as in photographing, just to clarify). I’ve always been interested in animals (both exotic and not-so-exotic), and the legends surrounding them.
In what areas do you want to learn more about or improve your photography?: I’m still a beginner so I have a lot to learn. However, wildlife and landscapes are probably where I would like to improve.
I enjoy being a member of WWPC because: I like WWPC because I feel relaxed, and it is not focused on only one subject area. Besides, the snacks are AWESOME!!!!!!
Glad you are a member Grace! Thanks for being in the spotlight.
For those who missed out last meeting, we had a Judged Salon with some great feedback from photographer John Pennoyer. HERE is a link to the submitted images.
Nicole S. Young (Nicolesy) is one of the photographers I follow on social media. Below is a quick Photoshop tip on adding textures using smart objects. Simple!
